If you believe in a presumption of Equal Parenting Time for both parents similar to the one in Missouri or Arizona, then this is the group for you to join. We will work together to bring this important change to Illinois.
We are seeking 50/50 parenting time for the parents living apart in Illinois and other states as well. (Go North Dakota!)
We believe that this important arrangement is in the best in interest of the child.
We believe that only divorce lawyers win when there is no presumption of equal parenting time.
We believe that it is both the mother's and the father's right to parent their children - to pick them up from school, to do homework, to cook dinner and all the other small things that make up the fabric of a parent - child relationship.
We also believe that you do not have to be personally affected by divorce or separation in order to be an Equal Parenting Time Activist because this probably the last sphere of human rights which people talk about in hushed voices. And so we aim to take this very personal struggle and give it a public outlet, and what's more an outlet with a chance of making a political difference.
To that extent, we will conduct fund raisers to benefit the campaigns of politicians who favor Shared Parenting, pamphlets and other material in downtown Chicago and other appropriate places, and will also provide support for those who need it, for those who are going through the difficult times of being away from their children.
Please join us if these issues and goals resonate with you.
